James and Sirius, upon entering the park, make a beeline to secure fast passes for their favorite rides (the ones like Matterhorn, Indiana Jones, Space Mountain, etc.)
At this point, Remus is really regretting not investing in a pair of those child-leashes that a good third of the parents at the theme park are sporting.
Peter tries running after Sirius and James, but gives up (not being fast enough) and hangs back alongside Remus, getting distracted by the array of gift/candy shops lining Main Street USA
Remus has to get a picture of Sleeping Beauty’s castle upon entering. He just has to.
James and Sirius are really smug when they get to cut in front of everyone with their fast passes. Remus just gives apologetic looks, and Peter has to shovel down the pretzel he bought before they get on the ride.
Ok, so considering the average temperature for Scotland during the summer time is around fifty seven degrees, and for southern California (L.A.) it’s around eighty one- they’re dying.
James and Sirius are wearing the bare minimum, and Remus has to rent a locker to stuff his sweater into
Sirius is rocking a man bun
James buys a Wizard Mickey hat and absolutely refuses to take it off
Peter may or may not be on his fifth churro by the time lunch rolls around
Remus really enjoys the small corners and alleys of the park where the crowd thins
Peter gets a coonskin hat from frontierland
Lots of shameless flirting with princesses coming from Sirius that result in autographs with the occasional phone number attached.
James seeing the Ariel and automatically missing Lily
Peter getting sick on the teacups ride after James decides to spin theirs as fast as he fucking can.
Lots of “JAMES NO!”
Sirius and James, after hearing about the two hundred feral cats that prowl the park at night, decide to go on a hunt for them
They legit smuggle cat nip inside the park and search the bushes for cats
Remus is so done with everyone’s shit
He just wants to have a normal visit at Disneyland is that so hard to ask?
Peter really wants to watch the parades, but Remus sees this as an opportune time to beat the crowds (now gathered along the street) to the rides
Remus is honestly ride or die. He doesn’t fuck with these slow ass tourists who have no idea where they’re going. He knows where to go and everyone is getting in his way.
Sirius getting picked on by characters (i.e. Chip ‘n Dale tugging on his man bun and snickering at it)
James in a flexing contest with Gaston
Remus only taking pictures the Mickey and Friends characters
And he’s all embarrassed to walk up to them at first
James taking the mic from the tour guide on Jungle Cruise because he thinks his jokes are lame, so he starts dishing out puns like its nothing and does a mic drop
Peter screaming a little too shrilly when the Yeti pops out on the Matterhorn
Sirius and James trying to find the entrance to the secret basketball court on the matterhorn
Also using alohomora to get into restricted areas of the park
Sirius singing Small World on repeat
James trying to harmonize
Remus really likes walking through Sleeping Beauty’s Castle (James and Sirius are hardly impressed)
But his favorite ride is the Disneyland Rail Road
Peter’s favorite ride is Star Tours and he convinces the others to ride it at least four times throughout the day.
James’ favorite ride is Indiana Jones. When he sees the snake statues in the ride, he mutters “Snivellus?”
Sirius prefers Pirates of the Caribbean
Remus getting really insecure because he notices little kids looking at the scars on his face with mild confusion- some are even scared
But then Peter Pan comes over and he does his thing. He tells Remus (making a big show of it so that others can hear) that he must’ve put up a good fight against the “pirate” that did that, and comments on how brave he is
Remus is just smiling the entire time and plays along with Peter Pan, and the kids gathered around are awestruck
Sirius and James posing for the camera on Splash Mountain
Having to restrain Sirius and James from jumping into the Rivers of America to get to the island
aaron is one of those people that is fascinated by crime docs/unsolved murders and it’s the one topic he and andrew consistently talk about (no, it’s not subliminal shade. they eventually get past that)
neil, nicky, and dan all know how to sew and mend clothing
matt partakes in stress baking and can make a variety of desserts and decorative cupcakes. renee gets him to teach her. when they make too much matt hands off the left overs to neil who then passes them on to nicky, aaron, and andrew, much to kevin’s dismay
dan is good at dancing. like, really fucking good.
kevin regularly offhandedly shares historical facts/events and their corresponding dates that he somehow found relevant to whatever conversation he’s partaking in
he also readily answers questions and provides menial but accurate details (aka something my actual little brother actually fucking does)
allison knows how to surf and eventually learns how to skateboard because why not
kevin and dan have the highest alcohol tolerance of all the foxes
renee is exceptionally good at telling scary stories, so much so that she’s well known on the campus thanks to it
matt used to play D&D when he was younger. he eventually manages to convince some of the foxes to play with him and regularly DMs a game for nicky, aaron, dan, renee and sometimes neil. neil mostly watches though, since he can not for the life of him understand the fascination for it.
dan is constantly made to shoot her trash from a distance whenever she tries to throw something away because she never misses. there’s a betting pool of when or if she’ll ever miss and it is ever-growing &frighteningly large
on one birthday kevin received nothing but vodka and huge jugs of protein powder from the others and it was, quote, “The best birthday ever.”
there is definitely a beer pong tournament held with the other athletes in the dorm. the top three is constantly contested between the exy team, an array of cheerleaders, and the basketball team
aaron and matt both really fucking love baseball. matt is friends with some of the baseball players in the dorm, and after they graduate/go pro they send matt tickets to some games which he drags aaron with him to go see
neil is double jointed and gets a sick pleasure grossing the other foxes out because of it (andrew finds it childish)
allison knows how to play a variety of instruments (piano, violin, and cello)
aaron is sliiiiiightly taller than andrew
renee and andrew are insanely good at various bar games (darts, pool, shuffleboard, card games in gen, etc.)
speaking of, andrew can easily perform sleight of hands with his knives because he taught himself how to do so with cards. he’s also proficient in some magic tricks but no one is aware of it
kevin easily gets car sick and absolutely hates riding boats
when dan and matt get their own place, matt sets up stakes in his backyard and whenever the foxes visit they all drink and play horseshoes. prime socializing. kevin and neil get really into it.
matt actually picks up various outdoor hobbies and invites neil along with him. he teaches neil how to fish, he invites him to come camping with him and dan when he hears he’s never done so (for recreational fun, not survival) they also regularly make plans to go hiking during the summer.
when they both retire they definitely have some summers where they go backpacking together.
andrew travels with them partway before they part at germany where he spends some nights at erik and nicky’s place before flying back to the states
allison was a horse girl. her horse is still alive when she leaves for PSU and lives on a ranch owned by her parents
in addition to andrew, renee also knows how to tend a bar. except she is also capable of flair bartending and the other foxes always lose their shit whenever she shows it off
nicky pierced his own ears during high school
renee is just as much of a sweet tooth as andrew and they constantly discuss which flavors of ice cream are better and give each other recommendations
allison has self harm scars on her upper thighs/stomach
neil absolutely knows when someone’s hitting on him. he’s only obtuse because he doesn’t care for their feelings
have to go to a family meeting, but your family isn’t exactly the warmest. Some
very annoying aunts want to meet your boyfriend, even though you tell them
there is none. TJ, as your best friend, offers to pose as your boyfriend for a
few days. Can the façade become real?
- the dregs daring kaz to go on the ghost train and he’s like i ain’t afraid of no ghost?? so he gets on and 5 min later there are two men clad in sheets literally pushing through the staff exit, two spooky knights trailing after them and one skeleton muttering “i didn’t sign up for this” (you can clearly see kaz behind them, casually swooshing his cane around, the epitome of calm) - meanwhile wylan decides to prove to kaz /and to himself + brag a little in front of jesper) he can handle the ghost ride too so he gets on another train, smoothing his hair back, rolling up his sleeves, acting all cool and badass. 5 min later wylan reappears, white as a sheet, wheezing a little, saying “the lamest ghosts i’ve ever seen!! hahahhahah!! fear who?? i don’t know her” - nina treats inej to a delicious ice cream cone and they take cool pictures dressed up as marie antoinette and nina fills up her dress so much (and well) the photographer can’t get his bearings while nina just smooths down her skirts with a haughty smirk like, “from one cake lover to another” - inej makes an offhanded comment about this plush tiger she liked and how it’s ridiculous to pay so much money to shoot a target in order to get smth so it becomes the dregs’ mission to get her that toy - five minutes later the squad rolls up carrying an entire bag of plushies, some short cash and owner’s apology written in ink while he begged kaz not to set his amusement park on fire - inej smiles, shakes her head and gives the tiger to a little brown girl who seems lonely and upset while her friends are at the playground with their barbies (she also tells her how tigers are one of the scariest felines AND predators in the entire world and it can eat three barbies at once) - meanwhile matthias decides to try his luck with the high striker (that’s how it’s called here so idk if that’s the right term but it’s that thing where you test your strength by smashing a lever with a hammer), not really trying to boast about himself or anything and literally BREAKS the lever, apologizing profoundly to the completely shocked guy holding his price - kuwei is just chilling on the carousel like, “this is nice” - they collectively get on the roller coaster and even kaz screams at some point even if no one can tell if it’s the urge to puke or he’s actually genuinely happy and enjoying life rn - either way they try every other ride until they’re literally green and regretting A Lot of the choices they’ve made in the past half an hour but they’ll always remember that day as one of the best days in their life - not just as a team but individually as well - after they’re done puking (inej is the only one holding up but she helps them cope with the aftermath of the rides by gently holding nina’s hair, patting jesper on the back, safekeeping kaz’s cane, throwing dirty glances at anyone who makes a face at them bc excuse you you’d be sick after 15 amusement rides too?? tf??) - later, they all go for refreshments while jesper shows them the pics he’s taken on his phone when they weren’t looking. there’s even one where kaz’s unmistakingly smiling at no one in particular (it’s just a coincidence inej’s laughing in the background and kaz’s head is turned in her general direction) - the pic /mysteriously/ disappears a few hours later but the good memories (and the rest of jesper’s camera roll) remain
I played alto sax in band for 7~8 years, and you use a thumb rest on your right hand to help support the weight of the instrument. I haven’t touched my sax in years, but I’ve still got this weird bump on my right thumb from the damn thing. It’s like a battle scar from the trauma of attending high school or something.
Summary: In a world where you can find out who your soul mate is with their final breath, it is reasonable why Diana grew up to be who she is now. (Soulmate Au- where they are words of soulmate’s is on your skin of when you first meet them or your last)
